Over the weekend a friend and I were discussing our dating lives when she told me she’d recently met a man she thought could be a potential boo. While we sat across the table sipping our cocktails, she gushed on and on about how cute he was, the fact that he was ambitious, his belief in God, and the fact that he talked openly about wanting to be married one day. I was starting to get excited for her until she asked a very important question.

“Brit, he just got out of a relationship, though. Do you think it’s too soon for us to hook up?”

“How long was his relationship?” I asked, hoping it wasn’t anything substantial that could come back to haunt my girl.

“Years…like three years…”

All I could muster was a “hmmm…” Should I tell my friend it might be too soon to get involved with a man who just got out of a serious relationship or was I just being overly cautious?

Clutchettes and Gents, help me out here. How soon is too soon to date someone who was previously in a long-term relationship?

Let’s talk about it!
